My Viking Name

Nikul�s Madhawk

Your Viking Personality: You're a fearsome Viking, but you aren't completely uncivilized. The other Vikings make fun of you for that. Unlike most Vikings, you don't have a quick temper; you tend to think about your actions before you undertake them. Sometimes you think too long. You might be able to hold your own on the battlefield, but you're no "berserker".

You would have a very tough time making a long sea voyage in a Viking longboat. You possess some skills which other Vikings respect.

You have a fairly pragmatic attitude towards life, and tend not to expend effort in areas where it would be wasted. You sometimes come off as a bit of a snob. Vikings are not snobbish people -- they either like you, or they kill you. Try to be more like a Viking.

Ok, this was sent to me by a woman so no remarks about me being sexist. Not that I'm not, I just don't want to hear about it. ;)

A group of girlfriends went on vacation and they see a five-story hotel with a sign that reads "For Women Only".

The Bouncer, a very attractive guy, explains to them how it works..... "We have 5 floors...go up floor by floor, and once you find what you are looking for, you can stay there." "It's easy to decide, since each floor has signs telling you what's inside"

So they start going up. First floor sign reads "All the men here are horrible lovers, but they are sensitive and kind"... the
friends laugh and without hesitation move on to the next floor.

The sign on the Second floor reads "All the men here are wonderful lovers, but they generally treat women badly". This wasn't going to do, so the friends move up to the Third floor where the sign read "All the men here are great lovers and sensitive to the needs of women."

This was good but there were still two more floors so on to the Fourth floor, the sign was perfect. "All the men here have perfect builds; are sensitive and attentive to women; are perfect lovers; they are also single, rich and straight"

The women seemed pleased but they decide that they would rather see what the fifth floor has to offer before they settle for the fourth. When they reach the Fifth floor, there is only a sign that reads: "There are no men here. This floor was built only to prove that there is no way to please a woman."

Wham, bam, thank you ma'am

Hah, good news for a change!

So I wrote a letter and included the check for rent this month, and the mgmt office sent back a letter saying they were going to apply $100 to my last month's rent, $100 to next month's rent, and the rest to this month's rent. Well, I called them up and asked what the hell that was about, as I had paid my last month in full. They said my rent was supposed to take a hike Oct. 1st and I said it was NOT and that it wasn't supposed to until November 1st. So she thought about it for a minute and then said that hey, since I've been so patient as they juggled me around and shifted schedules, that she'd scratch the whole rent increase and on top of that let me pay the old pre-hike rent for this month as well... so I ended up saving $300 off my rent for this month! Woo woo. :)

(The new 3 bedroom is $300 more expensive than the current 2 bedroom we're in; the rent hike would've raised the rent on this apartment by $100; I'm getting out of all of it and just paying my old rent even though we'll be in the new apartment this weekend.)

Hmmmm.

I've been thinking, and I realized I have no idea what I want out of life. In the big picture sense, I mean - like what's the point, what's the goal, where am I going, why? What do I want to do with myself? With my life?
